He’s back on the path — to parenthood!

Country singer Justin Moore, 29, and his wife¬†Kate are “so thrilled” to be expecting their third child this summer, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“We are so blessed that God has given us this gift for the third time,” Moore, who recently released his third album,¬†Off the Beaten Path, tells PEOPLE.

The couple are parents to two daughters Kennedy Faye, 2, and Ella Kole, 4 next month — and with three lovely ladies already in his household, Moore admits almost everyone is holding out hopes for a baby boy.

“Ella and Kennedy want a brother and so do I!” he jokes, before adding, “As long as we have another healthy child, we will be happy regardless.”

Moore — who is currently on tour for his latest album and a nominee for ACMNew Artist of the Year — and Kate tied the knot in September 2007.

I had heard that at his concert, a girl flashed him and he told her to put them away, the only breasts he wanted to see were his wife’s. Good on him. Congrats to them!

He is an amazing entertainer! Part of the reason I think he is successful in addition to his awesome God given talent is the love he expresses for his family and thanks God at the end of his concerts for all of his blessings, that incudes his fans too! I am a fan and love the energy of the fans when he is performing…fun fun fun!

I love Justin Moore! His wife and daughters are beautiful and it’s wonderful to see that he’s so committed to his family. I wish all married men would put their families first. He’s amazing in concert as well. We saw him with Eric Church. Love them both!
